In 1989, an unknown man stood in front of tanks ordered to shoot and kill student protesters during a pro-democracy demonstration in Beijing’s Tiananmen Square. British tabloids nicknamed the lone protester “Tank Man” as he continuously blocked the tanks’ paths that day. Afterward, they forcibly removed the man, and the tanks proceeded. His identity is still unconfirmed, but he has received recognition for his actions from the likes of Time referring to him as the “unknown rebel” in a list of the 100 most important people of the 20th century.
